that they have to try to cut spending to deal with the nation's deficit. we're watching what's going on at the white house, we'll have the full coverage of the news conference leading into it. we're also watching right now what's happening in newtown, connecticut. one month to the stay after that brutal massacre, you're looking now at live pictures, a news conference there, they're going to read a poem, let's listen in. >> it is a sad honor to be here today. it's been one month since i lost my son dillon and 25 other teams lost their loved ones. at times it feels like only yesterday and at other times it feels as if many years have passed. i still find myself reaching for dillon's hand to walk through a car parking lot. it's so hard to believe he's gone. at the same time i look at our community and what has been achieved in one month. a vacant school has been lovingly restored with great care and attention to welcome students back into a peaceful and safe environment. many businesses and groups are promoting the love we have in newtown as well as fundraising to help those in most nee
class is shrinking deficits in a balanced and responsible way. and for nearly two years now, i have been fighting for such a plan. one that would reduce our deficits by $4 trillion over the next decades. which would stabilize our debt and deficit in a sustainable way for the next decade. that would be enough not only to stop the growth of our debt relative to the size of our economy but it would make it manageable so that it does not crowd out the investments we need to make in people, education, job training, science, medical research. step by step, we made progress towards that goal. over the past two years, i have signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks i signed into law more than $600 billion in new revenue by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that will save in interest payments on the debt, altogether that adds up to a total of $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years. not counting the $400 billion already saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so, we have made progr

component to growing our economy and broadening opportunity for the middle class is shrinking our deficits in a balanced and responsible way. and for nearly two years now i've been fighting for such a plan, one that would reduce our deficits by $4 trillion over the next decade which would stabilize our debt and our deficit in a sustainable way for the next decade. that would be enough not only to stop the growth of our debt relative to the size of our economy, but it would make it manageable so it doesn't crowd out the investments we need to make in people and education and job training, science medical research, all the things that help us grow. now, step by step we've made progress toward that goal. over the past two years, i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago, i signed in a law more than $600 billion in new revenue by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that we'll save in interest payments on the debt, altogether that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduc
our deficit and a balanced and responsible way. for nearly two years now, i have been fighting for such a plan. one that would reduce our deficit by four trillion dollars over the next decade which would stabilize our debt and our deficit and sustain us for the next decade. that would be enough not only to stop the growth of our debt and the size of our economy and make it manageable. education and job training in science and research and all of those things that help us grow. step-by-step, we have made progress towards that goal. over the past few years and signed into law 1.4 trillion dollars in spending cuts. two weeks ago i signed into law more than $600 billion in revenue by making sure the wealthiest americans began to pay their fair share. when you add the money that we will save in interest payments on the dead altogether that adds up to a total of about 2.5 trillion dollars and deficit reduction over the past two years. not counting the $400 billion already safe from winding down the wars and i rock and afghanistan. we have made progress. we are moving towards our ulti
and debt payments from lower deficits, as a spending cut. that's a dubious claim. number three, obama is counting a nearly 1 trillion dollar savings from more money than nobody expected to be spent anyway, now that the war in iraq is over and the afghanistan war is winding down. so, obama's entire premise that we need a balanced approach to cutting the deficit is based on a huge fiction which is that obama's plan will cut 4 trillion during the the next decade. it will do no such thing. he's basing on a falsity, just like day one when he's been in office, distort and pr propgandize. now, republicans need to understand all of this dealing with obama. they're dealing with a man who is reckless, ruthless as any president they will ever encounter and my next guest says he has a plan that mr. bolster the republicans hand when it comes to dealing with the democrats on the issue of debt and much more. ohio senator rob portman is here. and what do you make of obama, only 2006 a vote against the debt ceiling. >> it went further than that. he said it would be unpatriotic. >> sean: that's another
to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. they even entertained the idea of this happening, of the united states of america not paying its bills is irresponsible. it's absurd. republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. >> as you would expect, republicans quick to respond. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell said in part the president and his allies need to get serious about spending, and the debt-limit debate is the perfect time for it. republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee took it a step further, suggesting her party was ready for a government shutdown. >> we're going to look

'd never use the debt ceiling to negotiate. there's been three or four deficit deals reached during debt ceiling negotiations. that's what they've been used for in the past. in fact, you voted no on raising the debt ceiling in 2006, and some other things. and then to see him actually, he looked shocked that his loyal cadre of acolytes that someone would actually broach the subject that, you know, that he actually had a tough time answering. >> i think it shows the position he's in, though. he gets attacked from the right and the left. >> he doesn't get attack. the questions i want asked are never asked of him anywhere. >> he should come on "squawk." >> that's not going to happen. >> i'll get out. is that possible? >> no. >> i had a story but we'll talk about that one later. >> what's your story? >> we'll do it later in the broadcast. >> about nerds? >> what else would it be about? you want me to talk to here? i'm going to talk to here. coming up this morning's top stories, plus we're going to hop behind the wheel with nissan ceo carlos ghosn at the detroit auto show. first check this out
deficit of california? >> yes. he's paying back some of the debt. we had 27 billion that was used and borrowed from special funds and he's paying that back slowly. by 2016, that is down from 4 billion. k through 12 education and they would do that trick and pay it in july where they owed them in june and that is here, about $2 billion. >> and that is what that were sold on when they raised taxes, the idea of more money going toec. does it fulfill the promise? >> it provides $2.7 billion more to education and 500 million to higher education and that is where a lot of the support is and the governor made a contract. i think he has a contract with the voters and is willing to live up to that and ask for more resources and money and taxes. he got that and is not going to be responsible moving forward. >> and when we pass prop 30, it wasdoms day. we were going to see draconian cuts and now a surplus? did that solve the problem? >> the question is, were they telling the truth then? >> is that crying wolf then? >> it's not. this budget has $6 billion from the tax increase and without tha
heights communications. kristi, to you first. candidate obama in 2008 promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. that hasn't happened. how about by the end of his second? >> well, john, i think what's important to remember is that as president obama is starting his second term, he's doing so in a remarkably strong position with high approval ratings and a great record in his first term. when he started, as we all know, the economy was in the ditch. he was able to successfully get us out of that at the point where last week the u.s. stocks closed at their highest level in five years and was able to pass historic health care legislation. by contrast, republicans have their ratings in the toilet. what that means is that there's probably -- it's going to bode well for their ability to compromise with him and for the president to get a second term agenda passed. >> chris, i suppose you see it somewhat differently. >> she addressed political positioning and i think that's what the second term will be about, political positioning rather than solving problems. i don't know
approach to cutting the deficit and huge fiction which in a plan will cut $4 trilin in the next decade, it will do no such thing. he is basing his argument on a falsehood which is what he's done is lie, distort. and what this showed us is that obama in the second term is going to be worse than obama in the first term. what we saw in one hour was the worst of our president on display. and republicans, they need to understand all of this dealing with obama. a man reckless, ruthless, and any president they will ever encounter. my next guess says he has a plan that will bolster the republicans plan. ohio senator is with us, how are you? >> great. >> sean: first, what do you make obama? only 2006 vote against the debt ceiling. now? >> he said would it be unpatriotic to vote to. >> sean: that is another thing. very that clip. do you want to see it? >> sure, it will be fun. >> sean: let's show the videotape. >> the problem is the way bush has done it over eight years is to take out a credit card from bank of china in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for

deficits, america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. >> bill: so the question -- so why should the president entertain this notion that the debt ceiling which republicans voted for 19 times under george w. bush without a peep, you know, why should he entertain the notion that suddenly this is a matter of big negotiations? >> well, he's trying to say that he shouldn't but unfortunately the house republicans have the majority in congress. unfortunately for him, so when he says he doesn't want to debate it and negotiate over it, he is running up against the fact that people who have the power in the house do want to debate it and that can cause problems. he certainly is pushing this idea here to try to remove this from the realm of what he wants and the american people see as rational debate. he used a lot of words yesterday that were very strong to try to make people see this as what he called an absurd way of approaching this. he talked about this being like holding a gun to your head or ransom. this
